With its origins stretching back to 1793 in Valognes (Bertiniere/Masson), the Bayeux porcelain factory’s famed Langlois period began in 1802 (Joachim Langlois, who had direct experience at Sevres, and brought this sensibility into Bayeux’s style, where it remained for the better part of a century, as still seen in this vase), before the Bayeux porcelain factory was established, as such, in 1810 in Calvados. Saint Laurent’s collection, however, was not the Asian style, but instead, traditional French themes – as seen in this vase for sale here, today. These sales establish the proper price ranges for this fabulous, ornate vase (Saint Laurent was famous for enjoying lush, opulent decor), which is more beautiful than any of the Bayeux vases I’ve ever seen – the hand-painting is impastoed and truly fantastic.
